EPUB Refugee Fund
During June and July, IPC will be supporting the EPUB (Eglise Protestante Unie de Belgique) refugee fund.
Disasters happen all the time: large ones, small ones, some that impact us and some that we watch from the safe distance of our computer screen or TV. The ongoing human disaster represented by hundreds of thousands of people fleeing their homes, fleeing a war-torn homeland, fleeing in fear of their lives continues here in Europe. There are no longer camps to be seen; they are hidden away. The problems are not high-profile; other issues have taken the headlines. But there are still thousands of adults, children and families seeking nothing more than to live without the fear of assault, rape, atrocities and death. They wish for no more than you or I.
The EPUB Refugee Fund is a “partner-fund” shared by our sister congregations from around Belgium. The monies collected are used to help children and young families begin the process of assimilation in their new home. In what is for them a desperate time, it’s good that the church remembers we are called to help “the least of these”.
Thanks for your support of our refugee relief fund.
